Rossi who is in Austin Texas, with Manor Racing for this weekend’s United States Grand Prix to oversee Jordan King’s run in Free Practice One won the Sunoco Rookie of the year award in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
The Californian’s highlight was winning the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil where he ran out of fuel shortly after crossing the finish line.
